Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Kafka Release 0.8.0 - Candidate 5
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2013 16:00:16 GMT
Seems like most people are verifying the src, so I'll pick on the 
binaries and Maven stuff ;)

A few problems I see:

There are some vestigial Git files in the src download: an empty .git 
and .gitignore

In the source download, I see the SBT license in LICENSE which seems 
correct (since we distribute an SBT binary), but in the binary download 
I see the same license. Don't we need the Scala license 
(http://www.scala-lang.org/license.html) in the binary distribution?

I create a simple Ant+Ivy project to test resolving the artifacts 
published to Apache staging repo: https://github.com/mumrah/kafka-ivy. 
This will fetch Kafka libs from the Apache staging area and other things 
from Maven Central. It will fetch the jars into lib/ivy/{conf} and 
generate a report of the dependencies, conflicts, and licenses into 
ivy-report. Notice I had to add three exclusions to get things working. 
Maybe we should add these to our pom?

I think I'll have to -1 the release due to the missing Scala license in 
the binary dist. We should check the other licenses as well (see 
ivy-report from my little Ant project).
